10:20 p.m. OK. I have to say I was a little underwhelmed by the game -- Timon had a bad shooting night (I'm sure due at least in part to Nichols on defense) and was never able to make a run back into the game; Timon tried to make it tough for Nichols to bring the ball up, and they did, which led to some turnovers; a lot of whistles halting some overzealous defense on both sides; not much of a flow. The gym was a pretty dead as well -- except for knucklehead fans (from both sides) treating the refs like garbage.
But hey, they all can't be thrillers, I suppose (like the teams' first meeting).
If you saw a game, let us know what you thought of the action.
